In this video, ECE students Lin Yi and Abdul Mohammed explain how they designed and built an artificial hand for the class "Applications of Embedded Processors," taught by Abi Yildirim, Ph.D. In this team project, students were tasked with designing and developing a hand using common "off-the-shelf" materials. For programming and driving the electronics, they used the Arduino (clone) board, which is available for less than $10. Mohammed and Lin, both part of the INTO UAB Program, used only $65 from their $100 budget to complete the project.
